Every Year the Education Council of IDSA puts out a call for papers to the education community. These papers are then put through a process of peer review and those that are selected are published on the IDSA website. In addition to this, some of the selected papers are then chosen to be presented at the IDSA International Conference and others for the IDSA Education Symposium. For more information on how to submit a paper, please contact Ben Chisholm.
